President, Play With A Purpose
Sharon Fisher is a professional "experience-maker". When all her friends where getting real degrees, she chose to major in "whistle blowing" as her father called her degree in Recreation. Now celebrating 20 years in her business, Play with a Purpose runs hundreds of events a year. Chosen as one of Entrepreneur Magazines Young Millionaires, she has proven that the passion for play works.
Her quote "in a world full of copies, here's to the originals!" summerizes her business style. Sharon's reputation for leading the industry in creating teambuilding, community service, and icebreaker events has led to 20 years in business. Now the next evolution is putting play on the broader meeting platform -- gamifying meetings, making them more engaging and relevant, and adding experiential learning programs to bring learning alive. She also helps organizations "think different" about their business with Quirkshops and Idea Explorations into customer service, creating engaging experiences, process improvement, and improving employee morale.
In addition to being the preferred vendor for Walt Disney World Co., her clients include Chevrolet, Camp Jeep, BBDO, Disney Publishing, Cadbury Schweppes, CUNA Mutual, American Express, Frito Lay, CarMax, US Air Force, IBM, McDonalds and the North Carolina Sweet Potatoes Commission. Her energetic style consistently delights audiences and makes learning fun.
